    "Medical Conditions: Andrews has been diagnosed as mentally retarded and has numerous other mental/behavioral problems."

    This jumps out at me.
    The whole "designer dress", gold chain, different jacket, etc found on the JD.

    Just seems a like hinky to me that he would be in New Jersey for any reason.
    Or a "likely" target for such an elaborate, execution-style murder. Not that it is impossible, it just doesn't seem too probable.

    Also "Two holsters, and one small caliber gun. Coins, comb, keys, lighter, and a ball.". I am not sure how Andrews would have got these. I suppose it would depend on the level of mental retardation and his functioning level.

    I don't see the resemblance, perhaps someone else does.

    Good points, maybe, with the holsters and expensive clothes and execution style he was mob related. I'll work on that angle and focus on the umnj
    I considered your points, as well, just not sure of the degree of lack of capacity, thought he may have run away.
    Thanks for your opinion!

    What about this as a possible match for Michael Andrews:

    Namus ID 5207 or Doe file HC1778

    I think that UID you listed as a possible match for Michael Andrews could also be a possible match for James Donald Kimball. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...all_james.html

    Bolingbrook where the UID was found and Oak Park where James Kimball was from are only 37 miles apart.

    I hope you don't if I make a thread with the UID you found to a possible match of James Kimball also..He's not on the rule out list either.

    I think it's worth a shot to see about both of them...someone is missing a loved one.

    I was going to start a thread for this UID but checked to see if there was one already. I remember reading about this in the newspaper after it happened and my initial reaction was how could a well dressed guy wind up dead in the woods in Old Bridge without anyone knowing who he was?

    I never recall reading about his hands being bound and being shot execution style which is on the Doe Network profile. it would not appear to be robbery as he had a gold chain on him when he was murdered.

    if there is any mob connection, my hunch would be the Russian mob in Brooklyn. per mapquest is it about a one hour drive from Brighton Beach, Brooklyn to Old Bridge, NJ.
